Bloody Ballad of Bette Davis


Piper Theatre Productions (New York, USA)

What if Bette Davis were a witch? In 2019, her evangelical daughter, BD Davis, claimed that her mother was filled with demonic forces that gave her power. Piper’s original musical set in 1975, tells the story of how Davis, saddled with bills for an infirm daughter, and now well past her prime, takes a job on the classic cult horror film Burnt Offerings. Following the unprofessional behaviour of pickled actor Oliver Reed, and the neurotic Karen Black, will she use her magical abilities for revenge or re-establish her power as the star of the picture?
